Pro Bowl left tackle Andrew Whitworth believes Anthony Collins is ready to step up and start in his place Sunday:
"“I’ll be fully confident if it comes upon him because he’s a guy that can do it and can do it anywhere else,” Whitworth said Wednesday, before going out to practice but not participating. “He’d be starting anywhere else in the league if he had the opportunity to.”"
Chicago Bears Head Coach Marc Trestman on his first NFL game Sunday as a HC:
"“I would think it’s going to be all business,” Trestman said. “I just can’t see it being bigger than that — focus on the football team and my job during the course of the game. I’m certainly very appreciative going out there being the head coach of the Chicago Bears on Sunday. There’s no doubt about it. But my focus is to continue to prepare this week and go out and do my job on Sunday.”"
